My question is about the peanut corn mentioned in this recipe. I see 1.5 lbs listed in the Ingredient section but then the recipe only adds 1/2 pound? Also, I see a reference to cooking hominy (which I always use in my pozole) but do not see it called for in the recipe. Is hominy what you are calling peanut corn ?
Yes! I was saying peanut corn for corn nuts - they are soaked in water to enlarge them and toasted. But hominy is similar and traditional.
